ajacot924 Posted July 15, 2012 Share Posted July 15, 2012 Hey Everyone, I am looking for some advice. I getting ready to enter a two year Master's program in education. I will be taking two classes per semester and working full-time (teaching elementary school). After my Master's, I would like to get my Ph.D. While I have been reviewing the admissions process for the Ph.D., it seems daunting. I was wondering if I should take a year off between my Master's degree so that I can focus on the application process at that time. My husband will also be buying a home and starting a family. It would be nice to have that year to focus on my personal life and getting my applications together. On the other hand, I am afraid that if I wait a year, my application won't be as strong as it would be if I went straight in. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks so much!
